My Magic Garden


These beautiful gardens were made with repurposed tissue paper from gifts, lots of watered down glue, cardboard for canvass and black markers.

Take a walk in a garden or look at photos of flowers for inspiration. Have your child draw flowers or a garden or really whatever they want on the cardboard. Have them tear their own pieces of tissue paper and glue the pieces over the drawings. Water down some glue in a pan and have them use a roller to roll glue over the top of their artwork – this will smooth down the tissue paper flat, allowing you to see the image underneath. The more glue, the better.
